Do you know who Emilia's voice actress is? I've searched everywhere but there is no info on her.
nononoko nononoko Said:

Hey there you can check this wiki for info on that. It’s under Other Details>Voice Actor

Sorry for bad linking setups I’m mobile at the moment.

Why does Lucius mostly wears sandals? he looks like a dancer from DC
nononoko nononoko Said:

I like sandals. I want free toes. They are no comment toes.
And I think he looks too fantasy-ish for DC
And to try to combine the two things you noted in the ask lemme say that the only characters who wore sandals in DC were Miss Aubrey’s retro look in dc3, Taye’s DCI look in dc3 and Jaryn’s Haute Blooded look also in dc3.

Can you give us tips on how to do character designs? :3
nononoko nononoko Said:

Watch Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows, watch Say Yes to the Dress, play with character customizations in video games, browse artbooks, browse artist galleries and concept and sketch posts.
And doodle a lot.
All those things up there have one thing in common and that’s characters. People with different looks and outfits.
If you see a silhouette you like doodle it, see another part you like? Note it down.
Keep reworking that character until you love it and it’s practical but not over layered with accessories because darlin sometimes less is best /hit
For example. Lucius’s outfit went through a lot of revisions. If you’d browse through my Lucius tag you’d notice that his outfit would slowly take form and sometimes I’d change small parts or bigger parts.
Bottom line don’t be afraid to try stuff out you can draw an entire cast of characters an entire fashion line and have them catwalk it out to you so you can check their looks and designs and rework them.

Maybe also give them a short plot summary so their look fits ya know.

What inspired you to draw?
nononoko nononoko Said:

I thought we established that /goes to grab bodie picture /hit

Oh you meant the beginning?
In the beginning there was anime and young noko

Young noko was amazed by the anime and jealous of how cool that anime was

young noko wanted to have their own anime so young noko drew and drew and drew and drew and here we are

Not so young noko is still jealous of the anime and draws

Forgive noko, noko just woke up

I really liked your designs of Bodie and Emilia in a battle style! Where did you find inspiration for the designs?
nononoko nononoko Said:

Battle style???
Did you mean the warrior and paladin sketches?
If yes then I just based it on the DC2 crew outfits then transformed each part into heavy armor.

I could go in depth but I’m on mobile and lazy lol

I've been hearing rumours that Dance Central Spotlight is a prequel or a spinoff to the series. What do you think?
nononoko nononoko Said:

you can easily check if rumors are true or false via Harmonix’s or Dance central’s twitter or facebook as their PR personnel are very helpful and will answer your questions to the best of their abilities.

Also the Harmonix podcast DID state that it is a sort of spiritual successor of dance central in their podcast so that’s true.

you can hear them here and here 

✒their podcast usually reveal more than their posts so stay tuned if you want info

instadump dance central dump again hngh

hella lotta doodles man help

Do you prefer the old dance central models or the new ones right now? I know, it's a tough question.
nononoko nononoko Said:

I do miss Bodie’s body.
he was more buff in the older models but the lighting and the 3d models in DC Spotlight is more smooth looking especially on the clothes and how the limbs move and are attached to the body

Bottom line both have Bodie therefore both are good. I’m sold every which way
